High Level Road Map for Intergraph Geospatial
John Graham, president of Intergraph’s Security, Government and Infrastructure (SG&I) division provided a basic, high level road map for his division’s product strategy. He will focus product development efforts on supporting the needs of spatial data infrastructure initiatives as well as 3D visualization.
The core platforms that the company has been selling for the last several years will be combined into a single platform. The product solutions which included GeoMedia, G/Technology, and TerraShare, will eventually have a single framework. This has been in development for the last two years.
Graham also stated that, "We will not be adding new industry focuses but will look for opportunities to develop core competencies." Specifically, he sees his division focusing on SmartGrid, Security, the integration of business intelligence with geospatial and leveraging consumer mapping platforms such as Bing Maps for the Enterprise and Google Earth. "The plethora of consumer maps will continue to increase because it is so useful. It’s a validation that (maps) are something important," said Graham.
